I owned a 2005 Toyota Camry LE. It was so reliable that my kids called it OLD FAITHFUL. Basicly it was maintenance free. I only did oil change, tire and battery change on it in the past 11.5 years. If it wasn't due to an accident that required expensive body work, I definately will keep it running. In comparison, the new 2017 Toyota LE did not change that much. Things I like better: back cemera, modern body shape, touch screen, roomy glove compartment with a lock, USB plug. Things I don't like: insulation is not good, wind sound louder; body construction feels not as solid as 2005 model, big gaps at all outside metal pieces; the car still moves a little without parking brake on when you switch to park (giving you scary feelings). Overall, it is a great car.
So far I love this car! Very well made, no rattles, Quiet. Great acceleration. Not to impressed with xm or the voice commands but I may not know fully how to use it yet. This model is fully loaded and I can't think of anything else I would want. Oh yeah, the led headlights are incredible! Also led high beams and auto high beams and driving lights. I do wish they had continued the led's in the back. And I think all Camrys have (real transmissions) not those CVT's I hate those.
Owned my 2017 Camry LE for a month now, so far no problems or complaints. I've 220 miles on the odometer. Seems to be well built, well designed. Virtually a computer on wheels with all the electronics and data readouts at your fingertips. Interior is plenty roomy for my needs. This is the third Toyota I have owned and this is probably the best. Overall, a good value.
Great for the money compared to others in segment!

XLE 4dr Sedan (2.5L 4cyl 6A)
After test driving several competitors to the Camry (Altima, Fusion and Accord) I decided to get a 2017 xle with the 2.5l 4cyl. While not as engaging to drive as the fusion with the 2.0 eco boost the price (31K vs 38K MSRP similarly equipped) more than compensates for the difference in a segment where most of us need the car to commute to work and for family road trips. The Camry isn't the most engaging to drive or the best looking but for the money and the expected reliability I decided to trade in my 2012 Passat for the Camry. The pros that I see : price, reliability, navigation easy to use and more functional than the accord or Altima. The cons: styling, driving dynamics.
